Diane Barbour “Using Early American Records”
Using Hard to Find Records Will Tell the Story of an Ohio Pioneer
This talk explores the life of Amasa Delano Sproat, an early Ohio settler. This case study identifies many of those hard to find early American records that tell his story. The participant will learn about records available before the 1850 every name census and how to obtain them. If you are doing early American research this class will help you.
